How to Label Boxes

“Fat” is In – Use the thickest, darkest marker you can find for labeling boxes. Pencils, pens, tin or light markers are almost impossible to see even just a few feet away.

Abbreviate Room Names – Start box labels with the abbreviated name of the room followed by a box number, such as “BTH2-6” for “second bathroom, 6th box.” You can then track each box to make sure everything arrived safely.

Label “Open Me First” on boxes where it applies.

Mark “Fragile” where appropriate.

Identify Contents – Identify the major contents and where they came from, such as “Medicine Cabinet” or “Linen Closet- Towels and Wash Cloths.”

Box Inventory – Keep a clipboard and write down each box’s room, box number and contents (graph paper is great for keeping things recorded neatly).

Verifying Delivery – When unloading, check off each box as it gets unloaded at your new place. Then you’ll know everything arrived safely.

Labels Out – Ask movers to stack boxes in your new place with the labels facing out so that you can easily spot a specific box.
